Each morning, a lion would wake up. It knows that unless it can outrun the slowest gazelle, then it will starve to death.
When the sun comes up you’d better be running and it doesn’t matter whether you are a gazelle or a lion.
With no boss breathing down your neck or clock to punch, It can be so tempting to stay in bed one hour longer, to postpone picking up the phone and contacting that prospect, or to focus your time and energy on the easy and fun stuff and put the unpleasant stuff off until later.
To succeed at home-based business, one of the core competencies you need is discipline. You are now responsible for your success 24/7 and if you aren’t doing what is required to succeed, there won’t be someone to come along behind you and clean up your mess. It’s do or die, eat or be eaten.
Being strong-willed as well as self-disciplined means that you can truly succeed as a serious home-based owner. Also, you need a solid, thorough, written plan to keep you on track and in constant motion.
To ensure continuous momentum, you can plan your daily activities a month in advance, or even weekly. Dedicating each day of the week to a different task if what some people prefer to do and examples include
During Mondays. Do some marketing
Every Tuesday. You can try business building.
Every Wednesday. Customer relations…and so on.
Others prefer to perform a variety of tasks on any given day, for example,
During Mondays. Do some marketing in the morning while business building in the afternoon.
Every Tuesday. Customers relations (morning), industry research (afternoon)
Having a plan and sticking to it is the most important factor here.
Creating freedom is the reason why most people start a home-based business but still, a lot of them fail to recognize the critical importance of a structured plan.
If there’s no plan, then there’s no business and no business means there is no freedom.
So remember, hit the floor running each morning, keep ahead of those who are following behind and overtake those in front of you. You’ve got to run whether you are a lion or a gazelle!
